What is the structure preserved by strong equivalence of metrics?

Let $X$ be a set. Then we can define at least three equivalence relations on the set of metrics on $X$. We say that two metrics $d_1$ and $d_2$ are topologically equivalent if the identity maps $i:(...

Does uniform continuity of bounded continuous functions implies the same for all continuous functions on a uniform space?

Recently I came to know about Atsuji space from the paper. A metric space $X$ is called an Atsuji space if every real-valued continuous function on $X$ is uniformly continuous. Strikingly I have found ...
